BILAT USA 4.0 workshop on Citizen Science - New opportunities for research and innovation in the EU and the US Citizen Science is a major focus of the European Commission’s H2020 2018-2020 Programme. It is also increasingly important to the US community, supported by high-level policy including the Crowdsourcing and Citizen Science Act of 2016. Although citizen science has already proven impactful across all societal sectors – academia, businesses, public sector, and civil society – , much of its potential remains untapped. There are opportunities to build on existing experiences and propel citizen science on a much bigger scale into a wide range of research areas that can benefit from this participatory paradigm. In addition, more work is needed to identify the value of and concrete opportunities for international collaboration, including between the EU and US. The workshop aims to facilitate the dialogue between scientists and policy makers, to articulate possible results if EU-US cooperation is enhanced at the policy level, and to provide input on concrete policy options to facilitate international cooperation moving forward.

Science in Public Conference 2018 | Intersecting Science In what ways might the question of intersection be one of the central questions of science and its publics? Science in Public 2018 is a conference centred on the multiple ways that scholars have sought to intervene in, understand, talk about, and co-produce with, the natural sciences – whether from the perspective of Science and Technology Studies (STS), Public Understanding of Science, Science Communication, Medical Sociology, the History of Science, Social and Cultural Theory, Science Journalism or some other intellectual inheritance. Intersecting Science is an explicit invitation to all scholars, practitioners, public engagement and communications specialists, and anyone else with an interest in Science in Public, to contribute Cardiff, UK more details...

Moral Machines? The Ethics and Politics of the Digital World As our visible and invisible social reality is getting increasingly digital, the question of the ethical, moral and political consequences of digitalization is ever more pressing. Such issue is too complex to be met only with instinctive digiphilia or digiphobia. No technology is just a tool, all technologies mark their users and environments. Digital technologies, however, mark them much more intimately than any previous ones have done since they promise to think in our place – so that they do not only enhance the homo sapiens’ most distinctive feature but also relieve them from it. We entrust computers with more and more functions, and their help is indeed invaluable especially in science and technology. Some fear or dream that in the end, they become so invaluable that a huge Artificial Intelligence or Singularity will take control of the whole affair that humans deal with so messily. The symposium “Moral Machines? The Ethics and Politics of the Digital World” welcomes contributions addressing the various aspects of the contemporary digital world. We are especially interested in the idea that despite everything they can do, the machines do not really think, at least not like us. So, what is thinking in the digital world? How does the digital machine “think”? Helsinki, Finland more details...

Open Social Science Conference 2019 - Practicing New Standards in Transparency and Reproducibility About a decade ago, John Ioannidis claimed that “most published research findings are false”. While seeming outrageous at the time, a growing body of meta-scientific research in the behavioral and social sciences has since substantiated this claim, causing uncertainty about the trustworthiness of published scientific findings. We believe that threats to the validity of published findings in the social sciences are widespread and systemic. Therefore, this conference promotes introspection about the current state of social science research and exchange on the opportunities for institutional and methodological improvement in the future. It is interdisciplinary in nature. Scholars working in any branch and within any methodology of the social sciences are invited to attend. Mannheim, Germany more details...
